|Oh, I think you have found a treasure!
My "brother" Jacques is a Tonk so I can tell you about them.
I don't know a Javanese personally, but you can go to the CFA website for more information.
I am not sure about the big paws. Tonkinese have small oval paws, but no matter. Tonkinese, Siamese and Burmese are genetically linked. A natural point Tonk will look very much like a Sealpoint Siamese but they have aqua eyes. Both Javanese and Tonks are "deceptively heavy" and your delicate cat will most likely be 11 adult pounds of solid muscle. Oddly enough, Javanese have slightly different personalities according to their coat pattern!
Both Tonks and Javanese are active, intelligent and love companionship. Neither is quite as vocal or loud as a Siamese, but Orientals do love to talk. And, yes, they have big ears.
Tonks require no special grooming; a Javanese may need a bit of brushing as they have longer hair.
"Your" cat should fit in as long as you know he will be energetic, clever, and want to supervise everything you do. They adore the company of other cats, and this is almost a "must" since they are easily bored with humans who can't keep up!
If you have any particular questions or if I have missed the point, feel free to pmail and ask. I am sure you will get input from others!
